[Freedompop US] Global sim with free monthly talk/text/data Back on sale $0.99 + FS

Aug 31 - Back on sale for $0.99
https://www.freedompop.com/offer/voices ... =affiliate


$4.99:
https://www.freedompop.com/offer/lpvoic ... lSIMVoice4

The deal is for the global sim card and comes with 1 month of premium services but you should downgrade everything to the free plan which includes 200 mins, 500 texts & 200MB per month. You can add an extra 500mb of data per month by adding Freedom Friends here:
http://slickdeals.net/f/5276432-freedompop-friends?v=1

You will need to install the Freedompop app and voice calls are VOIP and text are made through the app and uses your data allotment.

The sim that you get is a 3UK sim from England and the list of supported countries are here:
http://www.freedompop.com/worldwide

I got in on this deal when it was $0.99 so this current deal is only luke warm but can be good for those that travel to the supported countries and only is satisfied with using only Data. I've tested the sim in the US and it runs on the AT&T network with HSPA+ speeds only but it is fast enough. Haven't had a chance to test in the other supported countries but some have reported success in some of the European countries.

Shipping within the US only so you will need a US address. Canadian credit cards may be accepted. Freedompop is sneaky about charging for extras so DOWNGRADE all services to the free plan immediately after signup.
Here are some instructions to downgrade:

Unfortunately, Canada is not one of the supported Countries but you can select a Canadian phone number.
EDIT: So I decided to try to call my 604 number from my landline but it would not connect. Got the message "Your number cannot be completed as dialed..." I don't have an LD plan so I'm guessing the number is long distance despite having the YVR area code. Tried from my cell (only have Province Wide Calling), and got the message that I might incur LD charges. Sent a text (Canada Wide Text) to the 604 number and it went through without any charges. I was also able to call the 604 number using Hangouts. Conclusion: The number might still be an LD number despite having a local area code. Note: This was done through WiFi. There is still no service in Canada.

This is a sweet deal. I've been using Freedompop for over a year now. The service is pretty good (for being free) but I wish I hadn't got the ZTE whatever phone on the Sprint network. Now I wish I had a dual SIM phone so I didn't have to swap SIM cards.

Still can't believe this is possible. Free phone service in the USA and around the world. If I were to go the the US and use my Rogers phone the same amount I'm sure my bill would be close to $800. What a world we live in.

How does that compare to chat sim?

$5 a day on share everything with Rogers in the US, sure free is better but with Rogers you keep your number

Good to know.
We have been using Roam Mobility in the US and Orange Spain in Europe (look up their GO Europe plan).
Might as well try this next time.

I'm going to Spain next month and looking to have around 500Mb data to use for quick browsing and voip calls.
What would be the best option? This or Orange?
Thanks in advance

I can't get past this requirement either.
Tried all routes to their site; using a Buffalo zip.

Is the GO Europe plan the one that's 1 Euro/100mb? Where did you buy the SIM card?

Yes, the one with 1 Euro/100 MB.
I bought two SIM cards from the eBay seller ofertas365. They came activated and preloaded with 5 and 10 Euro - I don't know why there was a difference, but it was a nice surprise. Refills are easily done via the Orange.es customer portal - I had no problems using a Canadian MC card.

Keep in mind, ebates.com currently has a $15 cash back on new Freedompop accounts.

If you clicked the coverage map first, and then the signup link after, it will ask for a UK postal code. You will need to clear the cookies in your browser and click the original link first and it should take you to the US site where you can enter your Zip Code.

Yes, but only the supported countries listed.

Shipping is slow and takes a couple of weeks. Its best to use a new email address as existing customers may not be able to add new "Freedom Friends" for the extra 500mb of data per month.
